September’s arrival means big changes

We made it! The highest change month is here. We’re in for a burst of extra juice as this fall season could prove to be one of the most pivotal and change-packed of the decade.

September in general tends to be the “unofficial” New Year as the change in weather, school back in session and the lazy days of summer ending. This year however, it going to feel more like starting a whole new chapter in your life, rather than just a fresh year.

Long gone will be the days of stalled momentum and two steps forward one step back kind of days. It’s full steam ahead and you’re on a mission to bring it all together in one big swoop. As we edge closer to 2015 (which will be an eight year), the no-fail, abundance undercurrent will keep us moving along at a steady pace this month. Here we go. This is it!

Talk about turning the page. Today is a one, the number of new beginnings. We’re officially ending the mixed bag of clarity and chaos that was August and preparing ourselves to step into a whole new world this September.

Sunday’s tone is a bit different than your typical one day (pioneer, trailblazer number) though because it’s super-charged with the highest change number of all the nine (September is the ninth month). Any changes you’re about to experience for the next 30 days will feel amplified and electrified. The disconnected feeling you may have had last month is moving on out today and for good (at least for a few months). You can liken this day to your train finally clicking into the tracks set for high speeds.

The best part is, the horizon is clearing and you’ll be able to see for miles ahead now. Use this Sunday to prepare your mind, body and soul for the start of the best part of 2014. As the saying goes, we’ve saved the best for last.

So here we find ourselves back in the midst of another eight day (don’t worry, the double eight madness is behind us), but instead of frustrated chaos, it’s the true expression of the eight with its powerfully confident and svelte energy that knows who it is, what it wants and how to get it. You’re back, baby, and boy do you have a lot of pent up mojo to expel.

Speaking of mojo, this first day of September will actually be a tad sexually charged because you’re feeling on top of your game and raring to go. Give in, let loose and be rambunctious, it’s been a while. Since the month (nine) and day (one) add to 10, it’s going to be mostly focused on superficial indulgence anyway as 10 energy (when not being the mentor) likes to have a good time. Throw a party, go out for a drink after work or do something (anything) with reckless abandon. Your wild side is calling you.

Baby, hit me one more time! Yikes, this week is proving to be a powerful change agent. Tuesday is keeping up with the pace with lots of high change nine energy to go around. Not only does the day’s date reduce to nine, it’s a nine day in the ninth month. Here’s the starting point this month where will begin to see double nines instead of double eights.

Nine is also the number of ambition, idealism and responsibility (aka the Humanitarian). The nine is responsible for the tremendous amount of progress and achievement we saw during that 100 year block between 1900-1999. Everyone born in that century had at least one nine in their date of birth. That’s some heavy ambition floating around and exactly why we saw civilization move from “Little House on the Prairie” days to advanced technologies like computers, cars, etc. Ever wonder why we’re already nearly 15 years into the turn of another century and the momentum of technological advancement has drastically slowed? There are tweaks on the old, but nothing really new or unique. It’s all because of the nine. So there you have it. If you grab that nine energy by the horns this month, there’s no telling what you can achieve.

Nine is also known as the big dreamer and with today’s double whammy nine, if you can dream it, you can achieve it.

And bam! We’re hit again. This time with another pioneering, trailblazing number of new beginnings (one). There’s a different flair to it though because this day also carries the whole and complete number of unity 12-three under which everything comes together nicely. Your dots are connecting and there’s a synergy in the air that makes you feel like all is right with the world and you’re right where you need to be. Who would have thought we’d feel so much contentment while under the influence of the highest change month of the year? Change is good as they say and even if your mind doesn’t agree with that 100 percent, your soul does and it knows what you truly need. It will be a huge networking day so don’t sit on the sidelines. Engage, interact and mingle. Opportunities don’t always fall into your lap, sometimes you have to make them.

Here’s your chance to sneak in a break from the fast pace of the week’s energy. It’s the pure 20-two, which is the number of intuition andsensitivity, but today’s date also carries double fours (the doer). As the middle physical number of practicality and organization, the four isn’t afraid to get in the trenches and get it done in any way necessary.

The only hang up here is that when fours come in multiples, there is a tendency to lean into materialism with too much focus on the physical. Money, possessions and status can override longer term and more meaningful goals as the four suffers from impatience when in the negative.

Use the pure two energy of the day to step back and view things more through the window of the soul, so as not to throw anything out the window too hastily or sell your soul to the devil today. Keep in mind it often takes hard work and dedication to bring some of the best dreams to fruition. Good things come to those who wait.

There’s a whole boatload of fun energies in today’s day. Where do I begin? It’s the ninth month (highest change number), the fifth day (freedom of expression number) and the entire date reduces to the social butterfly, imaginative and inspirational three. It’s like stepping into a fairytale today where anything is possible and there’s always a happy ending.

If there was ever a day to go for it, no matter how outlandish the plan, it’s today. Everyone has rose-colored glasses on, so they’ll be open and receptive to most anything (or at least view it with an open mind and heart). Even the toughest cookies will be softer today, so put in your requests to both the pivotal people in your life and the universe. You’ll be surprised at how many “Yeses” you get in the next 24 hours.

When we’re in the midst of the highest change month of the year (and possibly the decade), an intermittent helping of the solid, stable, foundational number of practicality can go a long way in helping us keep a firm grasp on the reins. We end the first week of September with the master number 22-four (master builder), which combines a double dose of intuitive and sensitive twos to guide us soulfully and a single four to keep it all grounded, real and down-to-earth.

Perspective is everything when you’re in the big dreamer, tangent thinking ninth month. All in all, this has been a satisfying week and today you’ll be able to take a step back and piece together (build with the master builder energy) all the whirlwind changes that have been thrown upon you this week. Think of it as ending the week on the right foot, so you’ll start next week the same way.
